USA Vs. Antigua & Barbuda, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Lineups

Finally, here we go. After 10 months of nothing but meaningless friendlies it's World Cup qualifying time for the United States. They are down in Tampa to take on Antigua and Barbuda, which is a gimme and will not be an interesting match, but it's finally a meaningful one! The Americans will take three points then turn their attention to Tuesday, when they play at Guatemala in their first real test of qualifying.

With Fabian Johnson and Edgar Castillo both out with injuries, Jurgen Klinsmann has turned to Jose Francisco Torres at left back. You can't criticize that because whoever he put there was not a good idea. Injuries have backed Klinsmann into a corner. Also of note is Herculez Gomez starting over the still unfit Jozy Altidore, but that isn't really a shocker.

United States (4-3-2-1): Tim Howard; Steve Cherundolo, Clarence Goodson, Carlos Bocanegra, Jose Francisco Torres; Maurice Edu, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones; Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey; Herculez Gomez.
